Russian post-black metallers SECOND TO SUN have released a cover version of “The Wolven Storm (Priscilla’s Song)”, a track featured on the videogame “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”.
The band comments: “A’right, lads and lasses, we are overjoyed to give ye our cover version of the Wolven Storm (Priscilla’s Song) from Witcher 3!”
“This cover is pretty consistent with the sound of our “Blackbound”  album. Unlike the majority of the covers of this song, where most of the attention is targeting Priscilla, lyrics and visuals, we have concentrated on the musical aspect and have attempted to create a dark and impressive soundtrack to the final game credits. I hope we’ve succeeded!”

Realms Of Odoric, the artwork / soundtrack project by Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkrA) and illustrator Kris Verwimp, have released another video of a song from the current album “Second Age”. The video features animated illustrations by Kris Verwimp.
Realms Of Odoric have also announced the release of an MCD entitled “The Cymbric Age”, which will be published via MDD.
Realms of Odoric – “Second Age”
Label: MDD Records/Shop
Release Date: December 14th, 2016
Running Time: 43 min
Arkadius Antonik – All instruments
Kris Verwimp – Artwork, Concept
The soundtrack project of well known graphic artist Kris Verwimp (Marduk, Manegarm, Tyrfing, SuidAkra), and musician and composer Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkra, Fall Of Carthage), where they combine their creativity in a concept of a huge fantasy world, will be continued by the end of the year 2016 with “Second Age”. “Second Age” tells the story of the second era of Odoric. The story is realized in the complex and orchestral compositions of Arcadius, as well as numerous illustrations by Kris Verwimp, which can be admired in the offered 80-page book. Due to the study and completion of Arkadius at the Audiocaution Academy, the compositions are much more mature than ever before. For the first time in the history of the project, the recordings were recorded with the participation of guest musicians from all over the world. Two compositions of this amazing work were played and recorded by the Brandenburg State Orchestra and the Budapest Scoring Symphonic Orchestra. The 18 tracks undoubtedly represent the culminating point of the creation of both exceptional artists, and create a fascinating and inspiring experience for listeners as well as beholders. Composings and recordings (with exception of the orchestral recordings) “Second Age” was created by Arcadius Antonik in the “Realms Of Odoric” studio (Würzburg), while Martin Buchwalter is responsible for mastering at the Gernhart Studio Troisdorf.
The CD Book is only available on MDD (and a few choosen shops) without huge store distribution.
The project is defined by the combination of illustrations and music.
